Almost every woman at some point of time in her life wants to become a mother. Motherhood is a symbol of undiluted love. It is often seen that women have to make huge sacrifices in their respective careers to be able to start a family. However, we should also remember that every lady has a right to excel in her career no matter how long it takes.
She should not be held captive by her advancing age- to choose pregnancy over career. She deserves full freedom to achieve her career goals before making the life- changing decision of having a child. So let us understand today what is the best time to conceive.
We often come across couples at our clinic who ask if it is the right time to conceive? is it too late? Can I wait a little more?
Firstly when is the
We all have to accept that men and women are biologically different. A male can have normal spermatogenesis that is production and maturation of normal sperms even till 65 to 70 years of age, but a female has a fixed reserve of eggs at the time of birth. As her age increases the quantity of her eggs goes on decreasing. So, the quantity and quality of eggs of a female are the best when she is 21 to 30 years old. After 30 years, the quantity of eggs starts decreasing at a slightly faster rate. And after 35 years it’s not only the quantity but also the quality of eggs that gets affected.
So the ideal time /the best time for a woman to conceive is between 21 to 30 years as it is during these years that the quantity and quality of eggs is at the best level.
But does it mean that after 30 years you cannot conceive ? Absolutely not
Today we have an option of infertility prevention or in other words fertility preservation wherein you can freeze your eggs and store them at a younger age when they are of good quality and you can use them at a later age when you plan to have a baby. By freezing your eggs you are actually buying time so that you can have children when you actually want them.
Now , many of us are not aware of the body processes involved in conceiving.
Let me explain them to you –
As you all know that a normal female has a uterus and two fallopian tubes and two ovaries. Every month follicles get selected in one of the ovaries out of which one follicle dominates and ruptures after it grows to a particular size.
When the follicle ruptures at the time of ovulation, an egg is released which travels to the fallopian tube and waits for the sperm. If at the same time the sperms swim up till the egg in the fallopian tube, one of the sperm fertilises the egg and an embryo is formed. This embryo travels in 5 to 6 days to the uterus where it gets implanted and the woman becomes pregnant.
Now let’s discuss the best time to conceive during a menstrual cycle.
